1961

This is the 



Hourglass 



^ectic&tcct to* . . . 




We, the members of the Class of 1961 of Wilmington High 
School, deem it a distinct honor and singular privilege to dedicate 
this edition of the Hourglass to Miss Laura N. Marland, Head of 
the English Department. It seems fitting that one who has contributed 
over 40 years of her life to the educational welfare of the Town of 
Wilmington be accorded a measure of recognition and a vote of 
thanks which she has so long merited. It is hoped that her experience 
and counsel may be available to the students of Wilmington for many 
years to come.

This has been a year of accomplishment

This year has seen the flight of the first 
man into space and it also marks the year 
of your flight into the world around you,

May your successes be many and your

and the four of us will spend a happy 
evening together. 




Out of the hustle and bustle of one 
week of frenetic effort, the "Moonlight 
Cotillion," our Senior Prom, was held on 
May 19th. The gym was transformed into 
"Magnolia Manor" for the occasion. We 
danced to the music of Jack Hennessey's 
orchestra on the "lawn" and tables were 
set up cabaret-style on the "patio." The 
patio, decorated in soft pastels, blended 
with the midnight blue and dark green 
decor of the lawn. A low railing gaily 
decorated with flowers enclosed the patio 
while a sixty-foot mural adorned the far 
wall. 

Fay Waterman reigned as queen of 
the evening and was attended by a court 
of six lovely ladies — Maureen Charron, 
Dorothy DeGrasse, Barbara Gurski, Joan 
McCormick, Mary Quandt, and Barbara 
Sullivan. A catered turkey dinner proved 
a fitting climax to a truly memorable 
evening.

Although its 2-6-1 record seems unimpressive, the 
W. H. S. football squad was nobody's patsy as Lynn- 
field and North Reading will attest. The ten seniors 
on the squad, led by Captain Eddie Casey, bulwarked a 
stout defense which causpd most team fits as they gave 
ground grudgingly throughout the season. The last four 
games saw the offense come to life. The season was 
climaxed bv a real whing-ding of a victory over our 
arch-rival, Tewksbury, on Thanksgiving Day.

and proved the best combination in the area. Billerica again turned out to be a tough nut to 
crack, although an inspired effort by the Wilmington harriers fell just shy as Billerica won 
both outings. 

The boys placed second in the Lowell-Suburban Conference Meet and 11th in the 
24 team Class D section of the State Meet. Ron Knight was about 1 5th in state-wide com-

The Wilmington High hoopsters won six and dropped ten this year. Four 
inexperienced players joined Co-Captain Don Bailey and lost some tough ones 
in a trying schedule. Co-Captain Jim Melzar, Joe Beaton, Eddie Casey and Jon 
Fairfield rounded out the starting five. Besides the six official victories the boys 
also toppled the Alumni and the Faculty. Don Bailey and Joe Beaton were 
Lowell Suburban All-Stars.

The track team's 5-3 record could very easily have been seven wins and 
one loss except for defeats in the relay, the last event on the program, in the 
North Andover and Billerica meets. North Andover managed to salvage a 
practically unheard of two-thirds of a point victory in the initial meet of the 
season. Co-Captain Dixon Knight had a banner year, winning all his 880s in 
dual meet competition. He ran a terrific race to place third in the State Meet 
against the best in his division. Loyd Carney, Jon Fairfield, Co-Captain Frank 
Munroe, George Szadis and Greg Phillips all scored well against Lowell Subur- 
ban opposition.

The Softball Team finished its season on the plus side of the ledger as indicated by a 
4 wins, 3 loss record. Woburn was defeated twice, while North Andover and North 
Reading each fell once. Tewksbury proved too strong for the Wilmington lassies, taking 
both encounters and North Reading gained a split in the series to account for the other 
loss. With only two seniors graduating, Coach McCarthy can look forward to a strong squad 
returning for the 1962 season.

The Lowell Suburban Baseball Championship came to Wilmington High 
for the first time this year. Coach Gilligan's nine picked up ten wins against 
three defeats for the loop's best performance. A thrilling playoff triumph over 
Dracut before five hundred cheering fans completed the league schedule. 
Wilmington swamped Swampscott 16-5 and lost a heartbreaker 5-3 to a strong 
Woburn team which eventually went on to capture the Class B state champion- 
ship. Ricky Froton and Jeff Williamson handled the pitching chores, as 
Co-Captain Joe Beaton, Ed Casey, and Kevin Field supplied the major portion 
of the hitting. Excellent fielding on the part of Jim Melzar and Co-Captain 
Rick Damelio contributed "ready to the team's success.

Anne Marie Volpe 
Valedictorian 



Todav. the graduating Class of 1961. which 
twelve vears ago came here to learn, is about to 
go forth to serve its community and its nation 
in one of the most turbulent, conflicting eras of 
all time. 

The minds of a once confused group of 
children have matured and developed into a 
talented, alert, societal group, sharing the com- 
mon desire for peace and security in a troubled 
world and equally possessing the right to live in 
such a world. 

We are stepping forth into an era in which 
we must defend the same principle that our 
forefathers defended, that life is not worth 
living without libertv. Our founding fathers 
discovered what liberty is worth the hard way 
through personal experience with tyrannical 
governments. It is hoped that we may not have 
to learn about liberty in the same hard school 
of experience. 

If we want to keep our priceless liberties, we 
must first try to understand what we mean when 
we say that we are free. Liberty is something 
that we share with other people; it is a way of 
living with other people. 

Democracy is an attitude toward people, a 
kind of respect for all people regardless of 
wealth, position, ancestry, color, or race. It is 
necessary for us to respect the rights of others 
and in working out our rules of justice and fair 
play, we must applv the rule of equalitv, By 
equality we do not mean that all people are 
alike or are equally strong or good or wise, but 
that they are equally human. When we say we 
believe in equality, we mean that we intend to 
try to understand the needs of all people, even 



Our Challenge: Peace 
Our Weapon: Decision 



if thev are so humble that they are very easily 
overlooked. Everybodv is important in a democ- 
racv, because democracv is based on the belief 
that the people care about the welfare of the 
communitv and the nation. 

We need libertv to find out what is good and 
what is just. Democracy is an ideal, and we 
must never become satisfied with only past 
accomplishments, for the work of democracy is 
never finished. 

We are not all wise and because this is true. 
it is verv important that we should be willing to 
listen to people who criticize us or disagree with 
us. Often times a democracy works best when 
people are not too sure when thev are right. 
This doubt leaves room for improvement. 

One of our most priceless rights is the right 
to have differences of opinion and to discuss 
these differences freely and fully, but the right 
to say what we think means also that we have a 
dutv to listen courteouslv to what other people 
saw A courteous way of talking over our dis- 
agreements with others is one of the greatest 
democratic virtues. 

Let us, therefore, assert that upon our 
shoulders and upon the shoulders of all future 
graduating classes rests the obligation to secure 
these goals. In so doing, we shall be striving 
toward the common goal of establishing a world 
devoid of fear and based upon peace and 
brotherhood. 

Our foundation have been fashioned weU 
during the past twelve years of learning, and 
these foundations will be our guide, our strength. 
and our aid as we embark upon this new era in 
our lives called DECISION. 

Decision is a task that will confront us 
always and the past resolutions will seem 
minute compared to the seemingly great obliga- 
tions and duties which we must face in the 
future. Let us therefore resolve here and now 
that we shall meet these momentous decisions 
with confidence, sincerity, and responsibility; 
recognizing both our limitations and capabilities, 
so that our parents, teachers, and friends may 
witness, by our deeds, that we are capable of 
Decisions. The tomorrows will be ours to mold 
into the forms that we have imagined. We have 
at our finger tips a massive struggling world in 
all its untamed glory. It is ours to explore and 
enjoy, but most important of all. it is ours to 
conquer and improve. 



Omnia Vincit Amor 

(Love Conquers All) 



Members of the School Committee, Mr. Shea, 
Mr. McMahon, parents, Reverend Clergy, Fel- 
low Classmates, and invited guests. 

As we gather here today, members of a proud 
community, a progressing nation and a massive 
world, we are all possessed with great hopes and 
dreams for the future. My fellow classmates 
and I are justifiably elated, for this is indeed a 
proud day in our lives. We have successfully 
completed our twelve years of basic training, 
under the watchful eyes of our teachers, 
advisors, and parents. And now, armed with 
knowledge, and filled with the zest and enthusi- 
asm of youth, we stand at the brink of life 
prepared to plunge ourselves heart and soul into 
an uncertain world — a world over which an 
ominous cloud is cast. This cloud symbolizes 
the hatreds, the conflagrations, the murders, the 
violences, of man's history — in simpler words, 
an titter absence of love! 



What has become of love in the world today? 
Against the frail physical constitution of man 
has been hurled the deadliest weapon yet devised 
in the annals of history — man's inhumanity to 
man I 

The inventor of this weapon? Man! 

The components of this weapon? Avarice, 
greed, prejudice, hate, conquest, and destruction! 

The victim of this attack? Man! 

The controller of this weapon? Man! 

The hands of man are smeared with the blood 
of his brother; the earth has become a family 
slaughterhouse! 

No, this is no exaggeration. Need we have 
more proof than the holocaust ended just sixteen 
years ago, World War II? (or rather, it might 
be more aptly labeled, "Man's Second Attempt 
to Annihilate Himself.") Can we close our eyes 
and shut our minds to the casualty lists of eighty 
million dead, thirty-five million wounded and 




^ ' 




Carol Schiavone, Salutatorian 



eight million missing? 

And now, under the guise of science, progress, 
and defense, rockets ricochet from- the earth to 
nowhere, guided missiles are unleashed, bombs 
are being perfected — and these are the lauded 
accomplishments of the day. 

And who are our enemies? Against whom 
are these precautions being taken? They are, as 
we are, created in God's image, endowed with 
souls — they, too, thrill to the sound of beauti- 
ful music; they, too, gaze in wonder at the 
heavens; their hearts swell with the ebb and 
flow of a mighty ocean; they feel the peace that 
pervades the soul upon seeing a lazy river wind- 
ing through a quiet countryside; they, too, feel 
humble and small before the height and majesty 
of a towering mountain. These are people as 
we are. The common bonds we do have, our 
emotions, our feelings, and our souls, are the 
only roads to understanding and peace. 

Before He was crucified, Jesus gave His 
disciples this guiding principle: "This is my 
commandment, that ye love one another, as I 
have loved you." Love one another, ponder 
upon it, love one another. Hate only begets 
hate, but love alone has the healing power. 
Love is the only vehicle that can travel the road 
of the soul to the hearts of our enemies. 

Let us deliberate. We have seen the results 
of hate and force — might we not conquer the 
world by love? 




Cultural Revival 



Rose Dukus, Essayist 

If we take a close look at the situation in 
America today, we can see that it needs vast 
improvement. We seem to have become a 
nation of statistics — numbers with no faces. 
There will soon be computers with a phenome- 
nal capacity to remember and analyze data. 
Computors will digest business problems and 
offer various alternatives for their solution. 
Automated machinery, using electronics as its 
brain and hands, will take over much of the 
manual work done in factories. But what is 
happening to the human factor? It is being 
eliminated. 

When we graduate the working force will be 
increased by 1,000,000! This month alone, 
unemployment has gone over 6,000,000! But 
these numbers do have faces. They are indi- 
viduals. 

One is not against progress. Progress has 
carried jet planes across the country in five 
hours. Progress has developed miracle drugs, 
tranquilizers, heart surgery, painless dental drills, 
Salk vaccine and endless other achievements! 
Progress has put the atom to work lighting 
thousands of homes. Progress has placed us at 
the doorstep of space. 

But what of culture? Can these computors 
come up with a Declaration of Independence or 
Gettysburg Address? We are still learning from 
ideas expressed and written centuries before us. 
The intellectual monuments to man's genius are 
the only things that have lasted through time. 
Great cities have fallen and are now part of the 



dust, but through the falling of cities and the 
passing of generations the Bible has endured, 
which is studied today and shall continue to be 
studied for many centuries to come. We are 
still moved by the epic grandeur of the Homeric 
Poems — The Iliad and the Odyssey. We can 
still study the Egypt of 25 centuries ago through 
the works of Herodotus. The Shakespearean 
plays offer as much pleasure today as they did 
when they were first performed in the Globe 
Theater. We still discuss the philosophies of 
Plato and Socrates. Each day is filled with the 
beauty of music given to us by Bach, Beethoven, 
and Wagner. The works of Botticelli, Michel- 
angelo, Raphael, and Titian are still gazed upon 
in admiration. The libraries and museums are 
filled with great works that have remained the 
same with all these great changes in their midst. 

Let the already existing ideas bring forth 
greater inventions from you. We must make 
life fuller with our new ideas. Don't be dis- 
couraged by mistakes. Your mistakes, once 
made, will benefit those who have not yet 
ventured. Fear not criticism; it is the partner 
of both success and failure. It is this fear of 
criticism that often causes a valued word to 
remain unspoken; a beautiful song to remain 
unsung; or a masterpiece to remain unpainted. 

Our ancestors thought for thousands of 
years. They developed immense religious sys- 
tems. Political rules were established. They 
learned how to put life on canvas. They regis- 
tered fables and myths, legends and records. 
They left us a countless heritage of music. 
They set the pattern of intellectual perfection 
which has given us our culture. 

And now we, of the twentieth century, must 
also leave behind some wisdom for future gene- 
rations, that civilization may advance toward 
that age-old dream of individual self-perfection. 
Let us be ever conscious of this goal so that 
every yesterday is a dream of happiness and 
every tomorrow, a vision of hope. Let us leave 
such a legacy of peace and perfection to the 
world that forever more "our sons and out 
daughters shall prophecy, and our old men shall 
see visions, and our young men shall dream 
dreams." 



History of 
the Class of 1961 



The nearness of graduation not only propels 
our thoughts into the future but also causes us 
to reflect on the events, the fun, and the 
struggles of the past four years. 

Our entrance into the high school as Fresh- 
men on Wednesday, September 4, 1957 was 
unprepossessing. The different courses and the 
maze of long corridors confused us, and the 
unfunny remarks of the supercilious upperclass- 
men made us very aware of our low standing. 
We survived, however, and soon began our 
activities as a class. 



Although many of us immediately wanted to 
resign from the class upon hearing that dues 
would be a necessary evil, our class constitution 
was finally drawn up and adopted. We held 
our first election of officers with Mercedes 
Strow, president; Arthur Hall, vice president; 
Barbara Lynch, secretary; and Diana Imbimbo, 
treasurer. Our Student Council members were 
George Szadis and Robert Gage. 

One of the outstanding events of our Fresh- 
man year was the dedication of the new athletic 
field behind the high school on Veterans' Day. 

St. Patrick's Day will always be remembered 
for the "Carnation Caper" in which several of 
the more fiendish inmates of Miss Frotten's 
home room stealthily stole Mr. Sullivan's green 
carnation and demanded for ransom the return 
of the orange scarf which Mr. Sullivan had 
unchivalrously purloined from Miss Frotten. 
She got back a wrinkled scarf and he a slightly 
wilted carnation. 

Our Freshman year closed with the Seniors 
voting Dorothy DeGrasse and Arthur Hall as 
the most popular members of our class. 

Our ambitions to stride confidently back into 
school in September 1958 were dampened by 
the changes awaiting us. The Adams Street 
wing had been extended. Class periods were 
now to be an unbearable 55 minutes long, and 
we all mourned the elimination of the activity 
period. However, we now felt as if we were 
more a part of the school. 

We began class business by conducting officer 
elections. Frank Duffina was elected president, 
Jon Meads, vice president, with Barbara Lynch 




Claire E. Graham 



and Diana Imbimbo being reelected secretary 
and treasurer, respectively. Celia Spear, Marie 
Quinlan, and Claire Graham represented us on 
the Student Council. 

On December 23, 1958, our class held its 
first dance, the "Candy Cane Ball" in the gym- 
nasium gaily decked in red and green with a 
Christmas tree center piece. After the dance 
the refreshment committee breathed a sigh of 
relief because Jon Meads had not made good 
his threat to bring some of his repulsive looking 
home-made cupcakes for refreshments. Every- 
one had fun, especially those who discovered 
the mistletoe on the basketball hoops. 

Barbara Lynch and Arthur Hall were elected 
the most popular Sophomores. 

The summer vacation all too quickly passed 
into autumn and our Junior year, which began 
with some confusion because of the double 
sessions in the lower grades. Of course, the 
teachers were mixed up also. The double 
sessions ended in December and we adjusted 
ourselves to normalcy again. 

Officer elections resulted in Alan Ford, presi- 
dent, and Robert Ahern, vice president. For 
the third year Barbara Lynch was to record the 
class minutes, and Diana Imbimbo had the 
arduous task of prying dues from her money- 
hoarding classmates. Therese Enos, Joan Currier, 
Marie Quinlan, and Joan Butt were our Student 
Council representatives. 

November brought us our first dance of 
the year, a Thanksgiving dance entitled the 



"Plymouth Rock." Charlene Sullivan and Allen 
MacDonald were the King and Queen. Among 
the door prizes was a real door and cans of cran- 
berry sauce labeled "Radioactive" and "Poison" 
in commemoration of the cranberry scare. 

"The Class with Class" was chosen as our 
class title, much to the jealousy of the Seniors. 
We also held a contest to select a class motto. 
To the surprise of no one Jon Meads, who 
submitted ten-ninths of the entries, won with 
his motto, "The World Is Ours — To Improve." 

On December 11, 1959, many of our class 
members participated in the Senior-sponsored 
"Evening at the United Nations" presented in 
the auditorium. 

In February we joined with the Seniors to 
co-sponsor the "Hospital of Hearts" dance, which 
featured souvenir tickets in test tubes. 

Alan Ford's speaking abilities resulted in his 
being deported from the country for a week. 
Because he won the Rotary Oratorical Contest, 
he was awarded a trip to Quebec during his 
April vacation. Nancy Cutter, with Joyce 
Walden as alternate, was selected the Girls' 
State representative. Peter Neilson was the 
Bovs' State representative with Joseph Beaton as 
alternate. 

The night of May 13, 1960, brought a most 
important event — the Junior - Senior Prom, 
"Tropicana." An Everglades setting was created 
in the gymnasium with cloth material replacing 
the usual crepe paper to form the roof and 
walls. Janet Small was the Queen, and her 
attendants were Geraldine Brown, Carol Grey, 
Dorothy DeGrasse, Elaine Laurud, and Forraine 
Matthews. 

On Monday, May 23, we initiated the first 
Junior Week ever to be held in the high school 
with the "Parents' Night Banquet." We brought 
our parents to a delicious turkey dinner in the 
cafeteria served by the Sophomore girls. Mrs. 
Kenneth Wilson was our guest speaker. At the 
conclusion of the meal certificates of merit were 
awarded to the students who had achieved the 
highest marks in each individual class. 

May 24 was Dress-up Day. The next day 
after-school movies were shown in the cafeteria 
followed by a Coke party. 

On Fridays, May 27 and June 3, our class 
presented a variety show, the "Junior Jamboree." 
The singing, dancing, and crazy commercials 
displayed the many talented members of our 
class. Do you remember the fun when Harry 
Waterhouse, running up and down the aisles of 



the auditorium in his "Calypso Cutie" costume, 
kissed Mr. McMahon? The profits of Junior 
Week gave us the richest treasury yet to be 
possessed by a Junior class. 

The Seniors voted Barbara Fynch and James 
Rooney as the most popular Juniors. 

When we reentered school for our final year 
on September 7, 1960, we at once became 
infected with an incurable attack of Senioritis. 
We chose officers for the last time with Jon 
Meads, president, and George Szadis, vice presi- 
dent; our permanent office-holders, Barbara and 
Diana, were again reelected. Seniors on the 
Student Council included Dave Huston, presi- 
dent; Joan Butt, vice president; Marie Quinlan, 
secretarv; Barbara Bishop, treasurer; and Paul 
Ballou. 

We immediately began work on our class 
dance, the "Zombie Jamboree," held on October 
27. The gymnasium, renamed the "Old Grave- 
yard," was beautifully decorated in magenta, 
turquoise, and white. The walls were brightened 
by murals and a gold spider web. Three large 
papier-mache masks hung suspended as the 
centerpiece. The cafeteria was converted into a 
corpse-haunted "Chamber of Horrors" open to 
girls only. 

On Thanksgiving eve the Seniors joined with 
the Boosters Club to hold the traditional torch 
light parade and rally. Barbara Bishop, dressed 
up as our wild cat mascot in a leopard skin cat 
costume, nearly shivered herself into a case of 
pneumonia riding on top of the fire engine in 
the parade. The Seniors could easily be recog- 
nized at the football game by the wildly 
decorated hats they were wearing. Great was 
our joy when we saw Tewksbury defeated 14-6 
on our own field. 

Fay Waterman was chosen to be our repre- 
sentative at the State House on Student Govern- 
ment Day. Carlton Eddy won the Rotary 
Oratorical Contest and visited Quebec. The 
fact that the trip was to be made by plane no 
doubt spurred him on to flights of oratory which 
would have caused Patrick Henry to doff his 
hat in tribute. 

The funniest event of the year was un- 
doubtedly the Donkey Ball on March 3. The 
brave boys and girls of our class played basket- 
ball on donkeys to a sell-out audience in the 
gymnasium. There were few baskets, but many 
bruises and laughs. 

Culture flourished in our school as many 
Senior boys became interested in singing. They 
formed a choir and could be heard daily in the 
cafeteria yodeling "Happy Birthday" to Loyd 



Carney. 

On April 7 and 8, 1961, the Seniors brought 
the magic of the theater to Wilmington High 
when they presented the class play "Harvey," 
directed by Mr. Grant. How we laughed when 
Regina Donovan staggered on stage after Jon 
Meads had thrown her into the hydrotub. 
Harvey, the six foot, one and one-half inch 
rabbit, will forever be an honorary member of 
our class. 

We sponsored a barn dance on April 14 open 
to Senior couples and invited couples only. The 
girls treated the boys to box lunches. 

We all felt the nearness of school's end when 
we had the pleasure of missing classes to begin 
graduation practice. 

The biggest social event of our high school 
life was the Senior Prom, "Moonlight Cotillion." 
It was the first prom to be presented by just the 
Seniors themselves. The gymnasium was trans- 
formed into "Magnolia Manor" for the evening. 
The Manor was divided into two sections: a 
patio with the tables and a lawn area for 
dancing. The color scheme was pink, white, 
green, and midnight blue. A sixty-foot mural 
designed by Linda Calhoun covered the far 
wall of the dance floor. Hundreds of artificial 
flowers created by the girls in the Senior 



activity room bloomed profusely. Fay Waterman 
reigned radiantly as our Queen with Mary 
Quandt, Dorothv DeGrasse, Barbara Gurski, 
Barbara Sullivan, Joan McCormick, and Maureen 
Charron as her attendants. 

May 19 also marked the leaving of many 
commercial students for jobs. The introduction 
of moving through the corridors single hie made 
the remaining Seniors only more thankful to 
finally leave on June 2. The only Seniors still 
in school were co-editors Linda Calhoun and 
Paul Ballou and the other members of the ulcer- 
ridden yearbook staff. 

Our class banquet took place on Tuesday 
evening, June 6, in the cafeteria with George 
Szadis as master of ceremonies. We raised our 
voices in a final "Happy Birthday" to Loyd 
Carney. Professor Carl Gubellini of North- 
eastern University was our guest speaker. At 
the conclusion of the meal we held our last 
class meeting. 

On Sunday afternoon, June 12, we, the Senior 
class of 1961, received our diplomas. Now that 
we have graduated we would like to thank our 
parents, teachers, and advisors through whose 
help and sacrifice we are prepared to leave 
Wilmington High School with many wonderful 
memories to face the future with courage and 
knowledge and to contribute usefully to society.

Class Prophecy 



As I sat before the fire, watching the flames 
dart out, taking many shapes before me, I 
sighed and breathed in deeply, inhaling the pun- 
gent scent of the burning embers — my view 
became hazy. As my vision cleared, I saw the 
future unroll before my eyes. I saw a great city 
before me, skyscrapers reaching for the sky, 
swarms of people bustling about — the huge 
city of Wilmington, metropolis of Massachusetts. 
Out of the sea of people I saw a familiar face 
as it peered out from under an armful of 
bundles. Suddenly a great commotion — bundles 
were scattered over the pavement! There was 
Diana Imbimbo snapping furiously at Paul 
Ballou, who was stammering apologies for 
accidently getting in her path. Scooping up her 
bundles, she approached the lobby of the exclu- 
sive Hotel Huntly and tipped Robert Lane, 
the doorman. Martha Elwell, hatcheck girl, 
graciously took her bundles and mink stole. She 
entered the lounge and was greeted enthusias- 
tically by her fellow actors and actresses, Dolly 
Gagnon, Howard Britt, Fay Waterman, 
Barbara Lynch, Dorothy DeGrasse, 
Regina Donovan, Bob Ahern, and Joe 
Beaton, currently appearing at the Wilmington 
Playhouse in the great play HARVEY, under 
the direction of Jean DeAngelis and produced 
by Rose Dukus. 

An announcement over the P. A. quiets the 
conversation as the deep voice of hotel manager 
Frank Duffina announces the first man to set 
foot on the moon has just returned — Jon 
Meads! The room faded from my view. A 
spaceship landed and as Jon stepped out he was 
surrounded by reporters Jimmy Rooney, Paul 
Lynch, and John Martins. Mayor Gregory 
Phillips extended his hand in congratulations 
as police guards David Deming, Richard 
Damelio, Wayne Eaton, and Jack Cushing 
quietly stood by. Jon explains that his trip 
would have been impossible without the assist- 
ance of the radiomen, David Cronin, Wally 
Rich and Charles Graham and engineers 
Robert Gage, Loyd Carney and George 




Joyce Walden 



Twohig. The spaceship had been designed by 
Richard Waters and Mike Strow, based 
upon the intricate mathematical conclusions 
made by Alan Ford, Peter Neilson, and 
Carlton Eddy. 

My vision is carried once more into the busy 
street; namely, the corner of Church and Main. 
To my left is Bailey's Hardware Store. Anne 
Volpe is still the most efficient secretary at Sea 
Craft Industries which has been considerably 
enlarged under the management of Dave 
Huston, assisted by Eddie Casey. The office 
has expanded and now includes all of Murderer's 
Row — Barbara Sullivan, Barbara Smith, 
Ruthann Spaulding, and Rose Polvere. 
Poor Dave! Betty Rankin and Marie 
Quinlan are top dental assistants to the 
nation's foremost dentist, George Szadis. 
There is a new attraction at Merri-Mac- 
Mahon's Cleaners; Carol Schiavone at 
her honky-tonk piano entertains the customers 
while presser Larry Carr unhurriedly puts the 
finishing touches on Mike Weinberg's suit. 
To my right is the post office, managed by 
Robert Bryant. Housewives Elaine Natoli, 
Celia Spear, Mary-Hi McLaughlin, Jean 

SlDELINKER, MERCY STROW, GaYLE NAR- 

done, Gail Parziale, and Karen Scott idly 
discuss the town gossip — Attorney at law 
Patricia Traill, prosecutor in the suit of 
Elaine DiBella versus Ronald Outridge 



for breach of promise. Cole's Drugstore is 
buzzing as models Lauren Smith, Barbara 
Bishop, Nancy Cutter and Mabel Car- 
bone discuss the latest hair styles created by 
Joan Currier, Maureen Doyle, Isabel 
Berry, Joan McCormick and Judy Sprague. 
Bob Maloney, clerk, insists on adding his 
thoughts on the subject. Further down Church 
Street that wonderful institution, the school, 
appears. Charles Sullivan, a star janitor, 
hoists up the flag as principal Charles 
Ingalls pokes his head from his office window 
and admonishes Judy Condrey, Claire 
Graham, Roseann Eaton, Jimmy Rexford, 
Bev Garrett, Jim Melzar, and Therese 
Enos as they arrive late. They blame taxi- 
driver Speedy Wybert as the cause of their 
delay. Speedy's attention was diverted to Joan 
Butt as she crossed the street to the City Hall 
to meet her secretary friends Joanne Shelly, 



Margaret Martini, Joyce McAndrew, Bev 
McGuinness, Irene Flynn, Ginny Black- 
burn, Susan Whitney, and Diane White. 
The result was a head-on collision. Water- 
house's Garage was called and Michael 
Stanley, Bill Kennedy, and star mechanics 
rushed to the rescue. Speedy's passengers, 
Mary Quandt, Marion Halpin, Loretta 
Dawson, and Carol Crispo were late for 
their World Series softball game at Boudreau's 
Stadium. 

I sigh once more — in the distance a bell 
tolls, louder, nearer — - gradually through the 
mist the spires of a church appear. Here in 
this quiet atmosphere memories flood my mind 
as I recall old friends and old times and I 
wonder what the future has brought to them. 

Yes, this world is ours — to improve. That 
is certainlv what we will do.
